  • Why do I have to pay a road tax (HVUT)?

    The HVUT is a significant source of transportation funding in the U.S. In 2006 the HVUT generated more than $1.4 billion in Federal Highway Trust Fund (HTF) revenue.

    The Federal HTF protects the nation's investment in our transportation infrastructure. In 2007 Federal HTF receipts topped $39.9 billion, with $34.9 billion dedicated to the HTF's Highway Account. The Federal HTF finances a broad spectrum of transportation investments, including:
    • Highway improvements (e.g., land acquisition and other right-of-way costs, preliminary and construction engineering, construction and reconstruction, resurfacing and restoration costs of roadways and bridges)
    • Highway and bridge maintenance
    • Highway law enforcement
    • Safety programs (e.g., driver education and training, vehicle inspection programs, enforcement of vehicle size, and weight limits)
    • Congestion relief projects
    • Debt service
    • Administrative costs (e.g., research, engineering)
    Investing in our nation's highway infrastructure helps:
    • Save lives, time, and money
    • Reduce the number and severity of crashes for all kinds of vehicles
    • Enhance the ability of the entire community of emergency responders
    • Lower fuel and insurance costs
    • Increase mobility
    • Ease congestion
    • Decrease energy consumption
    • Boost air quality
    • Improve the transportation of goods
    • Raise business productivity
    • Strengthen the nation's economic productivity

    Since the vast majority of all funds contributed by states to the Federal HTF are returned through highway fund apportionments, there is a direct incentive for state agencies to take necessary actions to enhance HVUT compliance.

    Form 2290 or the Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax Return is available for electronic filing. The electronic version of Form 2290 will improve excise tax processing, expedite refunds, save personal resources (e.g., time & postage), and reduce preparation and processing errors. Your Schedule 1 will be available almost immediately (once your return is accepted by the IRS) through - no more waiting for it to come in the mail!

    Taxpayers filing Form 2290 reporting 25 or more vehicles for any taxable period are required to file Form 2290 online with an IRS authorized e-file provider.
